A REFINER AND PURIFIER



A REFINER AND PURIFIER

By Bible Names of God


Mala 3:3 And he shall sit [as] a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.

      What an appropriate title for our Lord! Moses called Him “The Leader;” Isaiah portrays Him as “The Sufferer,” the “Conqueror,” and the “Comforter;” Daniel proclaims Him as the “Prince,” but Malachi represents Him as the “Refiner and Purifier.” The very statement settles forever the fact of the need of all the sons of men. Nearly 2,000 years have passed since the Son of God died on the cross. Is the world better? Has human nature improved? No! Christ bore our sins in His own body on the tree and when He has changed these vile bodies into the likeness of His own glorious body, then, and only then, we will be rid of the dross of sin forever. Hallelujah!

      Blessed Refiner and Purifier, we glorify Thy name. We trust Thee to hold us fast forever. Amen
